Intro to Python Programming

2-day Python Course for Beginners in NYC

In this 2-day course, students will be introduced to Python. Python is a great beginner coding language that is quick to learn and extremely versatile. Python can be used to build software, to analyze data, and build amazing websites.

Python has become the most popular coding language learned at educational institutes for several reasons. Firstly, Python developers earn one of the highest average salaries compared to other programming languages, with statistics compiled by Indeed.com revealing that an average Python developer makes approximately $120,923. Secondly, Python has many uses such as graphics, data science, web development, finance, trading, and security. Lastly, Python can be learned faster than many other languages. As a result, no matter if you are a beginning developer or a developer looking to add a new programming language to your resume, you can become skilled in Python much more quickly than it would take to learn most other languages. In short, Python is a great first programming language to learn, and has the added advantage of a higher salary!

This program is designed for students to learn from scratch and build their way up to program in Python comfortably. Students will learn about the syntax, principles, and thought processes that programming entails. This course will give students a solid foundation that will allow them to enroll in our Data Science or Web Development Python courses. The course will be taught in a hands-on manner with students already programming within the first hour.

Introduction to Coding

In this class, students will be introduced to advanced coding topics in a short period of time with no pre-requisites needed. This is a great introductory course for anyone who wants to learn to speak to a programmer to gain programming skills themselves.

Hands-on Python Training

In our Python classes, students will dive into coding within the first 10 minutes of class. First, the instructor will demonstrate an exercise, then you’ll practice on projects which include college choice algorithm, temperature converter, stock data analysis, back-end web building, and more.

Why Learn Python?

Easy to Build & Test

Python code is very similar to English and can, therefore, be learned quickly. We are therefore witnessing an increase in start-up technology companies using Python as their preferred language.

Unlike Java or C++, Python’s syntax is very simple which allows programmers to focus on the product they are trying to build and not the syntax they need to follow. All this and more leads to products in Python being launched faster and smarter. Programmers can launch minimal viable products into the market for customer testing. The result is the creation of more technology products that have a proven and tested market. This ultimately prompts an increase in the flow of venture capital money into products built on Python.

The Language of the People

A language is only as strong and as useful as the number of people who are using it. Python has just surpassed 35 million downloads per year and an estimated 5 million programmers worldwide are using Python as their preferred language. The massive adoption of Python by programmers is a testament to its strength and speed. This also creates a highly valuable social network of Python developers. From searching for debugging answers on Stack Overflow to finding a job in a new city, the Python social network reigns supreme.

Diverse Network

With Python, programmers can build software for NASA, create data science models for Fortune 500 companies, and scrape data from websites and academic journals. In other words, there is an endlessly diverse group of people who use Python for very different reasons: the traditional programmers use it to build software and foster technological innovation, the data scientists will use it to build models to see which marketing strategy is most effective, and the academics use it to retrieve data autonomously using Python web scraping extension such as Beautiful Soup.  

Prominent Companies Are Using Python

Instagram, Spotify, Amazon, Facebook are all examples of companies who currently use Python as their coding language of choice.

Instagram uses Python because it fits with their company philosophy to “do the simple thing first.” Instagram uses Django web framework which is written in Python. Another reason engineers at Instagram opted to use Python is because it is simple and effective which allows them to launch new features with little downtime.

Spotify uses Python mostly for data analysis and backend services, but programmers at Spotify said, “Python has a habit of turning up in other random places, as most of our developers are happy programming in it.” Amazon and Facebook also use Python for features including recommended friends and products.

Frameworks & Environments & Libraries

Python's frameworks and environments all it to be used for a variety of tasks. 

  • Django is a full stack Python web framework that is open source and free to all. Django is widely popular amongst developers because it provides programmers with templates that simplify complex code.
  • Flask is a Python web framework that allows the use of Python in web development.
  • Beautiful Soup is a library for pulling data off of the internet.
  • Jupyter is an open-source web application that allows programmers to input, analyze, and visualize data.
